New submission from STINNER Victor:
Attached patch adds assertions to PyObject_GetItem() to ensure that an exception is raised if the function failed. _Py_CheckFunctionResult() could be used to implement such check, but it might adds a little overhead, whereas I really don't think that such bug occurs in the wild. The assertion only helps when you develop a new custom type implementing the mapping API.
The patch also simplifies Python/ceval.c: it now considers that an exception is raised if PyObject_GetItem() returns NULL.
Finally, the patch also fixes a bug in the LOAD_NAME bytecode, when globals are not a dict but a custom type and the name doesn't exist in globals: clear the exception before calling PyObject_GetItem() on builtins.
